liability 185,000 per year. that's president obama's plan. what about if you are in the highest tax bracket for romney's plan? >> now we are looking at dividends and capital gains. what romney would like to do is he would like to eliminate taxes on capital gains dividends for those making less than 200,000 dollars keeping it at 15 percent for everybody else. now obama must raise the capital gains again on the top earning income individuals. he wants to raise it on them and take dividends to the ordinary rate. you are looking at being taxed 39.6 percent nearly 40 percent. >> any one who has stocks, bonds things of that nature. >> corporate tax rate. we went to ep couldn't businesses here in america. we need more jobs more jobs more jobs. >> they both agree 35 percent the current tax rate is just too high. what romney wants to do is lower it to 25 percent which is right
in line there with congressional republicans obama on the flip side is calling for a top rate of 28 percent he would lower it to 25 percent. >> the current rate is 35 percent. >> 35 percent. they agree that is too high. obviously it is. >> that's why the companies are turning to other companies choking. >> what exactly is that? separate taxes from parallel taxes. it was enacted to enoccur wealthy individuals work its way down the income chain. romney wants do away with it all together. obama could like to replace it. he would like to replace it it requires millionaires making over a million collars would be kiered to pay 30 percent in taxes. >> in a city like new york your
